A little more tidy

Remember that overgrown backyard that was difficult to mow? Here's what it looks like now. We had a pile of bricks in the shed left from the previous owners, and it made a nice border for the landscaping. We placed landscaping paper down around the bushes before we laid the mulch. This should keep the bed relatively weed free! And I am all about that.




As for the garden, we considered tearing it out altogether, but opted for keeping it for future bursts of energy that convince us try gardening again. This year it wasn't an option, but I'm sure I'll get the gardening bug again someday!


Pardon the little dumbfounded boy in front of the garden. He would not move for this picture!

Great work! You must feel so satisfied with yourselves. I love the feeling of looking out my window and seeing everything cleaned up.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this
blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
Fantastic blog!
